Come join us for the 4th Annual Swatara Township Police Department 5K Hero Run.
This 5K Race is set in a unique location along Tecport Drive and Paxton Street. The theme of the 5K Hero Run relates to everyone whether you know someone in the armed services or public safety sector OR simply have a hero of your own. This race brings all of us together for one reason, to support our HEROES! Check out our map of the course by going to the registration page. A portion of the race actually takes you through the Harrisburg Mall!
This race supports the Keystone Wounded Warriors which aids veterans residing in or who have ties to Pennsylvania, COPS for K.O.P.S which supports the children of fallen police officers in the state of Pennsylvania and the Swatara Township Police Department's Crime Prevention fund.
